Well done, Hedgehogs, for fantastic musical and sporting successes this term. Lots of you have tried something new this month. Impressive leadership skills shown at our Music Spectacular 2018 and also at our 2018 Sports Day. Thank you for your help. Mrs Shearer

Our Dippy Trippy Photos. We had a fantastic trip to Dorset County Museum, Dorchester. It's the only museum where you can see Dippy face to face - great view from the balcony! Our favourite moments:
1. Fossil workshop - being palaeontologists and matching the hidden objects in our archaeological dig to the fact cards to identify each object.
2. Learning new facts about Dippy - we found his two sites of injury. He's off to Birmingham after Dorchester.
3. Fact finding group work - using the written clues to discover the dinosaur facts.
4. Dramatising how fossils are made -  we loved the Brandonosaurus sketch.
5. We loved social time in Borough Gardens - whole school park play was great. It was fun 'time out.'
6. Singing happy birthday to Ruby and Brandon and letting Dippy taste the cake! (See the photo below.)

Science fun, with Mrs Bendell, in the Learning Garden. Classifying leaves and plants.

Fantastic effort today Hedgehogs! Thank you for going to such an effort to dress up for our 2018 snowy World Book Day. Excellent 'in class' reporting on your characters and books. Top tip from David Walliams for super story writing = choose two characters/objects that usually don't go together! Olivia - outstanding expressive reading aloud today. A huge well done to all from Mrs Shearer; thank you to Ruby B for bringing in two scrumptious cakes to celebrate her special day - a very happy birthday Ruby. How special it is to be born on 29th February!

Our school trip to Haynes International Motor Museum in January 2018.

Sketching Autumn colours at Stourhead Gardens. We enjoyed walking around the lake, learning about how the Roman and Greek Gods inspired its design.

Hedgehog Class enjoy their visit to Dorchester to learn about the Egyptian Pharaoh, Tutankhamun and finding out about how the Romans lived. Lots of fun at the park was had too !
